Raichur: Engineering student ended life - Not raped, says postmortem report


Daijiworld Media Network - Raichur (SP)

Raichur, May 12: The death of Madhu Pattar, an engineering student, which had evoked protests and demands to book the culprits at the earliest, was not a case of rape, but suicide. This was the finding of the postmortem report.

The report mentions that there were signs of blood having clotted around her neck and except this, no injury marks were found in her entire body. Her footwear was lying at the spot of her death undisturbed, and there were no signs of her having been sexually abused. The team which conducted analysis of the findings has come to the conclusion that it was a case of suicide, not rape-cum-murder.

The decomposed mortal remains of Madhu Pattar were found lying on a hillock. The police, based on a suicide note, had initially treated it as a case of suicide but the parents and many others demanded for registration of murder case. There was hue and cry from the general public seeking stringent punishment to the guilty, and a web page, 'Justice for Madhu' had been opened to garner support for the demand for action. The state government had thereafter handed over the probe to criminal investigation department (CID) team led by superintendent of police, Sharanappa. The postmortem report has been handed over to this team. Sources said that the report has dismissed the theory of rape and murder of the student.

The investigation team has now decided to book the girl's friend, Sudarshan, who was arrested and continues to be in custody, for abetment of suicide.

Madhu and Sudarshan had undergone PU education in the same college. Madhu was a science student while Sudarshan had opted for commerce. The closeness which developed between the two continued even after Madhu joined engineering college and Sudarshan acquired commerce degree, it is learnt. The boy, who misinterpreted this closeness, had asked the girl to love him which the girl had refused. Angered by this refusal, he had, on two or three occasions, behaved rudely with Madhu in the presence of her friends, it is gathered. Madhu, frustrated by his behaviour, tried to permanently keep away from him, and Sudarshan, angered by this, assaulted Madhu when she came to the college.

The girl who left her home on April 13 had gone missing, and her parents had filed missing complaint the same day. On that day, she was walking by the road after leaving home, and Sudarshan had stopped her and created a scene, after which all contacts with her were lost. CID officials believe that frustrated over Sudarshan's behaviour, Madhu might have decided to end her life. Madhu's partly decomposed body was recovered three days after her death. She had hung herself from a tree.

    Its utter stupidity to relate every girls murder / suicide to 'rape ' , both r different crimes . So lets stop spreading falsehood by making media trails . Sympathies with the girl and family , and condolences .

    After reading this the only thought that evoke in my mind was that it was said that she was partially burnt.my question is if she was willing to suicide how is that possible that she would possibly burn herself first and then she hung herself to the tree...I want police to investigate still so that the truth is revealed and people don't live in misunderstanding.there may be possibilities of finding unspoken truth.....

    If she had problem with the boy she should have given police complaint. It is not the responsibility of Home minister.

    Yet another sad case.

    Thousands had expended huge amounts of energy accusing the young man of rape, and screaming capital punishment for him.

    Every case is different. Police must be allowed to conduct their inquiries.

    India has to stop accusing every A, B & C of rape...

    ... and demanding punishment.

    The accused person is a human being too.

    The girl who committed suicide not human being? Who harassed her? Who assaulted her? Who troubled her? Who created scene on the road in public? Who gave her mental torture? She would have definitely given police complaint but she didn't.. Know why? A person who can go to the extent of assaulting and creating scene on the road, definitely must have threatened her. She must have got scared of this topic enter the doorstep of her house. ...she was not at fault. But sometimes parents without knowing the depth take such matters seriously thinking of their reputation... What is the guarantee mangalurian, that he only made her to hang? Money plays major role in all the cases! 😡

    So long as we are not part of the investigating team, we will read the sensationalised media reports, and become emotional.

    Facts and what is available to the public might be very different.

    So I say, leave the investigation and eventual prosecution to the investigating team of police.

    Otherwise the whole world will go blind.

    Yes exactly... Mangalorean. I just replied to your comment and expressed my views based on your comment. If investigation was in my hand, I would have done thorough inquiry and given the transparent report to the public concerned. Oops! Unfortunately, It's not in my hand so I just have to comment.

    well said , these people have no other work. Spreading rape hysteria and starting fb pages , wasting time and creating public nuisances . Here it looks like girl dumped the boy and not the other way around . Such things always hailed as women empowermnet , may b she had guilt after that or might be some other reason to be depressed. We need to appreciate hard work of police and judiciary
